Daytrip to Paris
For my birthday Mike bought first class Eurostar tickets to Paris! We went for the day on Saturday 7 December 2002 and visited the Cemetiere Pere-Lachaise, and the Eiffel Tower. Photos from the Eiffel Tower are from the 2nd floor.

It was a fun (but cold!) day out, thank you Mike for a wonderful present!

Oscar Wilde lies under this hideous tribute donated by a fan.

Wilde's name is covered in lipstick kisses, which I found ironic.
